  • I feel ya. We just went camping and by the we walked back from the shower, it felt like we needed to take another one! Just be comforted by the fact that everyone is like that!

  • Thats normal, and if its not happening to you, you should see a doctor. I dont know about waxy, but getting oily in humidity, yea. Stop washing your face a million times because that wont help at all, just deal with it. You look fine.

  • I don't wash it a million times. It wouldn't help anyway!

  • Oh, yeah. I quit wearing make up anywhere except church for the duration, and for church, it's just the basics. It's just not worth the hassle.

  • i do wash my face several times a day, even if its just to water-rinse. summertime temps call for less makeup and lighter moisturizer (if any), so this is how i avoid the icky-face much as possible!
